Sql server Reporting Server activation with Sql server Core edition

One of my customer is trying to install Sql server reporting services 2019 and during installation customer gets 2 options; to select as free edition or activate through product key. However, customer states that he does not have a product key since he's using Sql server std core edition and hence unable to activate the SSRS 2019 product. Can anyone pls advise how SSRS 2019 can be activated if customer has Sql server std Core edition?

Hi @SreevishnuK

The SQL Server standard edition does have a product key. It is embeded in the installation media, you need to find the key by some ways . please refer to this thread:https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/questions/269453/2019-sql-core-license.html

You can use power shell to find the product key or by some third-party software,here is the thread you can refer to:https://www.easeus.com/key-finder/find-microsoft-sql-server-product-key.html

Sql server std core edition

What's a Core Edition, I am not aware of?
Which Edition is your customer using?
Beside the free Express Edition you always net a licenses and so a product key to install SQL Server.
